With no opposing votes, the Declaration of Independence was drafted and ready for all delegates to sign on the Fourth of July 1776.

The Declaration also is home to one of the best-known sentences in the English language, stating, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."""""""
